    Joe Coscarelli interviewed Jimmy Iovine and Larry Jackson of Apple Music for The New York Times:

    We wanted to work with Frank Ocean. We had a deal—we were working with Frank Ocean, and he controlled where his music came out. Why would it be in our interest to be part of a fast one, a slow one or any one? We were getting the record no matter what. Whatever happened with him and Universal is really between him and Universal. It has nothing to do with us. Nothing.

    I was curious as to how Apple would differentiate from the competition and their true vision is starting to be seen. That's why you pay Jimmy the big money.
